What the Rain Brings
The sound of rain on a fabric awning comforts.
Lives are forced to pause, and eyes, like camera
Lenses, take a broader, more indulgent, focus.
What was urgent has to wait. What were obstacles
Turn into fascinating things themselves. The world,
Even in the city, and its viewers, soften some.
The rain, which we know nurtures plants, appears
To bring improvements to the health of humans, too.
